The Waterperry Obelisk
Designed and carved by Simon Buchanan, the obelisk is the brainchild of the School of Economic Science who own Waterperry Gardens.
They commissioned the work so visitors have a greater understanding of the philosophical principles of the School by expressing a common aim of members.
The obelisk is similar to those of Egyptian style and incorporates an ancient prayer traditionally recited in Sanskrit and translated into English.
The structure also expresses a desire that peace should be everywhere in wording that reads:
‘All be happy. All be without disease. All creatures have well-being and none should be in misery of any sort’.
and the shopping I mentioned….
…. a vase I bought from the Gallery – by Simon Rich – zinc crystalline glaze on porcelain, 8″ tall. Utterly beautiful.

Where did the red granite come from – which part of the uk.
Now that I don’t know – a little more research I think. Perhaps up in Aberdeenshire? If I find out I’ll let you know. Best wishes, Martin
